Drawn to the Romany Life
Beshlie Heron is an artist who catches her subjects, shares her home with them and finally releases them in a field.
She draws field mice, frogs, beetles and wild flowers from life, but sets them in a fantasy world that has a flavour of the Romany life she and her husband lead among the Travelling People.

How Do You Read?
People worry about reading. Adults about how much and how fast they read, and children about how to do it. Schools worry about how to teach it; parents about how it is taught. Being unable to count is fashionable (remember all those public figures despairing over decimalisation?); being unable to read is a personal disaster.
Horizon tonight considers the reading process - how it works for the fluent, how it should be taught to beginners. One of the contributors says learning to read should be a natural process, almost as natural as learning to speak. And mistakes can be useful, because mistakes are an intrinsic part of the reading process, even among skilled and fluent adults.
Consider also the little girl in the programme who learned to read without being taught - when She was three. It may not happen for all children but it could change your way of thinking about reading. Narrator

Producers STEPHEN ROSE and HARRIS WATTS
A national campaign 'The Right to Read' is being launched this autumn to help Britain's two million adult illiterates. This will include a peak-time BBCtv series to encourage people with reading problems to get help and a radio series for those teaching adults to read.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
